Ce que vous en pensez

  • EdieEmm's rating of the film Brazil

    Gilliam's imagination, vomited onto a script. The real genius is in its realization, and I'm not sure there aren't projects worthier of those resources... Still, having put in more time than I'd like as a cog in the government machine, I feel it. Python does Kafka (w/ a dark twist on wish fulfilment). But.. Not really Orwellian; in fact no more dystopian than your average Western democracy.. (if just as nightmarish).

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Brazil

    Like Godard's Alphaville, the political aspects of the film have remained fiercely prophetic. An autocratic future state where people are simply statistics; a post-modern metropolis of wires & systems failing from the inside out; a world where the notion of terrorism is used as fear-mongering propaganda to satiate the masses, maintaining order through employed slavery, consumerism & dehumanisation. A powerful work.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Brazil

    To think that Brazil would not be the social and political statement it is today had it not been for the valiant efforts of Gilliam to protect his creation, works at two essential levels: thinking how many other masterpieces never saw the light of day; and art imitates life in what is a perfect metaphor for the film itself. About the piece little is left to say... it's the perfect visual aid to Orwell's work.

  • Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film Brazil

    cinema made for dreaming, but still with self-conscience and depth. forget about the criminal stuff - it was a real turndown for me - this is about people dreaming they are in some place else, in dreams, struggling everyday to not notice reality. it is not a unique concept, but it is very well achieved, and aquarela do brasil fully creates the mood.

  • anarresti's rating of the film Brazil

    In a way, I am glad that I saw this when I was realatively new to (good) cinema. So this felt so alienish and strange and awkward and beautiful that I did apreciate it as much as I could, coming from a state of hunger for art and novelty. I had no way to classify it or understand its pace, atmosphere, references, humour. And I loved it, for creating such a lovely disconfort inside. Dystopian superb weirdness genius!

  • Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Brazil

    Brilliant. A dystopia satire by Mr. Gilliam couldn't go wrong. Its absurdity, criticism and visuals (like Blade Runner, a delicious mix of noir and futuristic films) were such a please to see. Did anyone else notice the reference to the Odessa steps sequence from Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin? I found it better and less obvious than the one in de Palma's Untouchables.

  • House 0f Leaves's rating of the film Brazil

    A wonderful satire of bureaucratic cancer, more relevant today than ever, given the propensity of my current government to absorb once independent industries and install their ductwork into every facet.

  • deckard croix's rating of the film Brazil

    It's the best "Kafka" film not based (entirely at least, there is, of course, a definite influence) on a Kafka story. If this was Gilliam's ONLY film, he would still be one of the most visionary filmmakers of the 20th Century. In fact, this is the only film in Gilliam's filmography that I would say is perfect. Banal? Boring? Well, for me, it works like a charm.
